Don't Miss These Must-Do Activities in Venice

Don't Miss These Must-Do Activities in Venice

Although losing yourself in the charm and mystery of the canals of Venice is the main reason to visit, you won’t want to miss landmarks such as Saint Mark's Basilica and Doge's Palace, or experiences such as being serenaded in a gondola boat while cruising the Grand Canal. 

For travelers with more time, other must-dos include venturing to the Venetian Lagoon and visiting the islands of Murano, Burano, and Torcello; catching an opera performance; and eating you way through the city on a food tour. Plan ahead by booking tours and skip-the-line admission tickets to top attractions, which save you hours of waiting in line. See below for the tours and activities you won’t want to miss in the Floating City.
